BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office made two aggravated battery arrests Tuesday after a man arrived at a residence on Mire Road to retrieve his belongings from his ex-girlfriend.

Jessie Jacob, 38, flagged down deputies and explained that he had called his ex-girlfriend and notified her that he would arrive at the Mire Road residence to get his belongings. When Jacob had arrived, his ex-girlfriend, 48-year-old Conrad Rousseau and some acquaintances were present, according to APSO spokesperson Allison B. Hudson.

One of the people present was a juvenile male who was armed with a rifle, Hudson wrote.

Jacob reportedly struck two of the acquaintances with his vehicle, prompting Rousseau to fire several shots toward Jacob’s vehicle as he backed out of the driveway.

Jacob and Rousseau, both of Gonzales, were booked into the Ascension Parish Jail on Wednesday.

Jacob faces two counts of aggravated battery, and Rousseau faces charges of aggravated assault with a firearm, illegal use of weapons and aggravated criminal damage to property.

Rousseau was identified as the neighbor of Jacob’s ex-girlfriend, according to Hudson.
